Shriek Show

This division specializes in obscure horror and exploitation films such as Ultimo mondo cannibale, La notte del terrore and Zombi 2. They have been criticized for subpar DVD transfers, poor customer service and hard-matting films in the wrong aspect ratio for the sole purpose of anamorphically calibrating the films to wide-screen televisions, but have been similarly praised for the amount of effort they undergo in tracking down as many supplemental materials as possible for even the rarest films, including interviews with the filmmakers and photo galleries.
